  • It is a $5 entrance fee. Beautiful landscape. However, the smell of the water in the pond is not good. 
  • This is a nice place to come to if you want to see Japanese gardens look without going to Japan . The scenery is beautiful and it is very peaceful. It's also free to enter 
  • Really beautiful garden! You can come here to enjoy the scenery or pay a small amount to feed the koi. It's a great place to being the kids, and aside from the koi food and paying for parking at csulb, it's completely free!
  • Great place to unwind and escape our busy lifes. Parking is metered or with a all day pass. If you take yoga class through CSULB your class with come and do your sessions by the gardens.
  • Small, simple, delicate and beautiful place. Close Saturday for wedding event. Amazing place for small to medium weddings. Visit any other day during open hours and you'll get this peaceful feeling. You can sit here for hours, watch the koi and enjoy the serene setting. Parking is across the street for $5 all day or park in limited parking metersspots and its $1.50 an hour.
  • The Japanese garden is very beautiful with a large Koi Pong. Seating for events is limited, but those who can make it should be very impressed by the picturesque setting.
  • Great little Japanese garden on the csulb campus. Beautiful Koi pond, nice bridge and vibrant green trees. They require a permit if you take professional photos.
